What to Know About 1987 Chevrolet Corvette Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Chevrolet Corvette and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Corvette. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Corvette maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1987 Chevrolet Corvette!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Chevrolet, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Corvette's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1987 Chevrolet Corvette problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Chevrolet Corvette Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1987 Chevrolet Corvette to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Corvette’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1987 Chevrolet Corvette. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Chevrolet Corvette battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Corvette stranded. Your Chevrolet Corvette won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1987 Chevrolet Corvette's engine run smoother. See Chevrolet's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1987 Corvette in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1987 Chevrolet Corvette.

Maintaining your Chevrolet Corvette steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Chevrolet Corvette steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Chevrolet Corvette's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Chevrolet Corvette services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Chevrolet Corvette cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Chevrolet Corvette radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1987 Chevrolet Corvette maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

1987 Chevrolet Corvette Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1987 Chevrolet Corvette. Get answers to common Chevrolet Corvette maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Chevrolet Corvette alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Chevrolet Corvette? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Chevrolet Corvette engines.
  •  Why are my Chevrolet dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Chevrolet Corvette, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
